The Left’s organized propaganda machine is out in force to protest ABC’s new 9/11 documentary. Mr. Bob has urged us to go use their comment space to write something more appropriate, such as a letter of support, to ABC. I think it’s a fine idea. Below is the letter I wrote compliments of http://thinkprogress.org/tellabc (all you have to do is go in and change the subject line and message text to express what you want to say):
Robert A. Iger
President and CEO, The Walt Disney Company
Dear Mr. Iger:
Thank you for not caving in to political pressure from organized interest groups in your efforts to depict the events leading up to 9/11. Americans deserve the chance to see an honest, balanced historical account of what led up to that disastrous day so we can make sure not to let it happen again.
I am glad ABC has made sure this 5-year anniversary will not pass without some careful attention to the looming issue that shrouds all others: the Global War on Terror. As a nation we need to focus on working together to combat the radical Islamic threat rather than looking for opportunities to deliver political cheapshots against the President or members of Congress.
Please know that my family and I intend to view ABC’s important documentary special. Again, thank you.
Many on the Left would just as soon have Americans forget about 9/11, or at least would like to rewrite this vital piece of history. Shouldn’t the piece at least have a chance to air? Make your voice heard.
